Josie McCall is leaving behind her life as a mercenary soldier, trying to mold into the normal world with a career in computers. Daniel Black Eagle is getting deeper into the soldier life with Josie's father, Tyler McCall, by becoming his partner at the mercenary training school. When the school is blown up, with Tyler inside, and he goes AWOL from the hospital, Josie and Daniel are forced together in more ways than one in the search for whodunit. But will Josie's desire for a normal life and Daniel's scarred childhood get in the way of true love?
